Again, another 2 parter, only a minute each, so I combined them into two. But actually both are quite the same movie, as it's generally people walking up and down carrying very nicely produced signs (smash the fink hall!) and mugging for the camera (watch out for that guy in the beginning of the 2nd part!). During the second part, they all take a boat ride of some sort, I have no idea why.
